Weather forces cancellation of Thorntonfest for second year in a row

Mother Nature seems to have a grudge against the City of Thornton’s annual spring festival.  With thunderstorms arriving tonight and heavy rain expected through Saturday, most of the events have been cancelled.

The city made the announcement on their Festivals and Events Facebook page this morning.

This is the third time in the 22 year history of the event it has been cancelled due top weather. In 2011, two days prior to the event, heavy rain and hail flooded the multi-purpose fields. Last year, heavy rains leading up to the event soaked the fields and the city couldn’t risk the damage.
